    This dude has a severe criminal history including Probation revocation (Go Figure). If I were the victim, I would look into suing the state and the judges who allowed him back on the street for pain and suffering.

    Let me get this straight, I am not for suing but at some point, someone has to be held accountable for allowing habitual offenders back on the street to prey on innocent, law abiding citizens!!! It has to start somewhere and if these judges know they will be sued, maybe they would be less lenient. Some people cannot be rehabilated..... End of story!
